Why take private lessons?
As you know, learning to play an instrument does not end after the sixth grade, but continues as a lifelong study, which requires practice and instruction. Private lessons are a way to continue that learning process at a detailed level that is difficult to achieve in a full band setting. Students take private lessons for a variety of reasons - advanced training, remedial training, and one-on-one assistance, to name a few.
Private lessons are strongly encouraged for ALL band members. The Falcon Band program has established a private lesson program made up of the finest private teachers in the North Dallas area. All students will greatly benefit from the individual attention that private lessons offer, allowing them the opportunity to enhance their performance abilities and knowledge of their instrument and music.
For the convenience of the students and parents, private lessons can be arranged at school, both during and outside of the band class time. Lessons can be arranged at any time during the school year, as well as during the summer months.
Private lessons are provided at the weekly rate of $20.00 per 30 minute lesson. Financial aid is available to students who qualify based on need.

Private Lesson Scholarships
Because we want to make lessons accessible to all members, our Band Boosters generously raise money for the sole purpose of providing financial assistance for private lessons. Scholarships are for half-tuition ($10.00) per weekly 30 minutelesson and are awarded based on need.
The application for a scholarship is available at the end of the Private Lesson Enrollment Form. It is important to mention that all information provided in the application will be kept confidential and will not be shared or discussed outside of the band staff. Awards will be determined by the band staff.
The number of available scholarships is limited, so we encourage you to get your applications submitted in a timely manner. Scholarships will be awarded as long as finances are available.
If you have questions regarding our private lesson program, please speak to one of the band staff.
